I always try to find the item at a cheaper place!
You can guarantee to get it cheaper elsewhere, just dont set your aims too low.
And bidding for items is always good especially if you get a great bargain!

i love shopping at flea markets for affordable stuff. that way i get to haggle especially if i buy a lot of stuff all at one time in one stall. it's always best to wear comfy clothes and to bring water , mints (in case you get dizzy) and even a light snack in case your shopping lasts the whole day.

oh, also, when shopping in a flea market, it's always best to check in every stall since they usually offer the same stuff but sometimes at different prices.

Comparison shop, that is, don't buy the item in the first place you see it. Check other stores in the mall that carry the same item to be sure there's not a better price. Before you go to the mall, check prices for the item online, too. Be sure to factor the shipping costs in your comparison.

Flea markets, shop with a list and knowing when a sale will be opened are all good shopping tips. Another tip is do not depend on branded products. Check also products that are not heavily advertised but are of the same quality with the popular brands. This does not only mean groceries but clothing and accessories as well.

Shopping with a list does not really do much good. Because I habit of writing a list of what ai need and then I forget the list.

Do you have a camera phone? I have a tendency to snap a picture of the perpetual list on my white board before going to the store.
